Jones' radio program and website frequently traffics in conspiracy theory.
Jones is now fighting for child custody with his ex-wife, Kelly.
Will the real Alex Jones please stand up?
But at the same hearing, Kelly Jones said, "He's not a stable person".
Over the next two weeks, a Texas jury will decide whether Jones's "performance" reflects who he is in private life, and whether that has any bearing on his fitness as a parent. In her testimony, Jones argued that her estranged husband exposes their children to his violent, mad ravings daily. He broadcasts from home, she said, and that exposes their children to his incendiary behavior. "The children are there, watching him broadcast". And she doesn't buy the argument that his InfoWars persona is an act. And there's something about this fairy, hopping around, bossing everybody around, trying to intimidate people like me and you.
During Wednesday's hearing state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo ruled that the jury could hear a clip from a July 2015 broadcast, in which Jones plays videos his son put together with the help of the Infowars team.
That said, Jones has become a notable figure in conservative media, and if his own attorney describes his client as "a performance artist" - effectively characterizing Jones' freakish persona as a fictional "character" - that's an important acknowledgement for the public to be aware of. You fucking goddamn fucker... "Fill your hand." John Wayne famously said, "Fill your hand", in the film True Grit to a man he was about to shoot to kill.

The interview was broadcast as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held his first meeting with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. Washington and Moscow are trading sharp accusations about a chemical weapons attack last week in Syria.
Jones later described his anti-Schiff rant as "clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art".
"This case is not about Infowars, and I don't want it to be about Infowars". "I say every day we're going to destroy you with the truth". That's what the radio and internet personality's attorneys appear to be claiming in a bitter custody case playing out in AUSTIN, according to the AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN.
"This is the world he has planned for his kids", Kelly Jones' attorney said.
In December 2015, Trump phoned in to the Alex Jones Show for a 30-minute interview. "I will not let you down", the candidate told the host.
"Sandy Hook is a completely fake, with actors, in my view, manufactured".
